I do plan to see it, because I've always been enamored with the story, but I am not quite sure what to make of this version yet.
It appears to be a prequel, but rather than revealing the backstory of Peter himself, it reveals the backstory of Captain Hook.
Now, we already know the obvious about him (like how he got his hook), and in 1927, Barrie revealed more about the infamous pirate in his speech. For example, he is an alumnus of Eton College, the prestigious boarding school responsible for educating Prime Ministers, Royalty, and a number of other prominent figures in history. In that address, Barrie informed his audience that Hook was quite intellectual, and one of the more accomplished students in his class. His aunt described him as a sensitive young boy, and opines that his canings at the hands of headmasters contributed to his cruelty that led to his infamy.
I didn't see any of these qualities in the Hook portrayed in this upcoming film. It's difficult for me to imagine how the Hook we see (played by Garrett Hedlund) is going to evolve into the classic Captain Hook we all know.
